Rianda House Senior Activity Center

Rianda House Senior Activity Center

What We Do:

We believe in inspiring older adults to get the most out of life at all stages. Staying healthy, happy, and secure as we age can be a challenge, and a little lonely. We provide seniors with no-cost enrichment classes and vital resources to stay connected, engaged, strong, resilient and safe.

Gathering together brings fellowship, laughter and encouragement, and reduces depression caused by isolation. Our UpValley senior center provides classes tailored for adults 55+ that are available in St. Helena, Calistoga, and virtually during the pandemic. Classes include weekly tai chi, memoir writing, current events, meditation, strength training, art, discussion groups, and cultural lectures. Thanks to our strong partnerships with 22 local agencies, we host activities that include caregiver support, meals, brain fitness workshops, driver’s training, health insurance guidance, and emotional counseling. The monthly 20+ offerings are free to all thanks to grants, community donations and support from Give!Guide donors.

Other Ways to Help:

  • Ambassador – share our newsletter The Wrinkle (www.riandahouse.org/calendars)
  • Techno teacher – “how to” Zoom and use a cell phone
  • IT support – hybrid and recorded programs
  • Lunch Bunch – meal service
  • Classic Car Show and Event coordinator
  • Join our Garden Gang or Winemakers Group
  • Program support – lead cultural lectures, current events discussions and more!


I’m grateful to Rianda House for the many no-cost opportunities to be entertained, educated, uplifted, included, creative, active, informed, needed, nourished, and appreciated!
